DOJ Issues Warrants, Moves to Seize Assets of Bitar, Lederer and Ferguson

 

The United States Department of Justice is hot on the trails of the owners of Full Tilt Poker. Earlier this week, the Department of Justice amended their Black Friday papers to include money laundering allegations aimed directly at Full Tilt Poker.

The Department of Justice called Full Tilt Poker a “ponzi scheme” and tied the theft of $300 Million in player deposits to the over $443 Million which the company paid its owners and board members.

Now the Department of crypto gambling and FBI have taken it one step further, and issued an arrest warrant in rem for the personal assets of Howard Lederer, Ray Bitar, and Chris Ferguson. A warrant in rem is a court approved warrant giving the government the power to go after personal property.

The warrant in rem allows the government to seize the following accounts:

-Wells Fargo Bank N.A. HH Lederer Consulting LLC, 7655741861

-Lloyds TSB International, Isle of Mann, Howard Lederer, GB56LOYD30166314010402

-NatWest, Raymond Bitar, GB81 RBOS 6095 4234087766

-Citibank N.A., Chris Ferguson, 40039049628

The warrant was issued Sept. 19 and signed by the Honorable Leonard B. Sand, U.S. District Judge for the Southern District of New York.

According to the Department of Justice, Full Tilt mismanaged player funds and failed to segregate player deposits and operational expenses, while paying themselves exorbitantly over $443,860,530. $42 Million was paid to Howard Lederer, $41 Million to Ray Bitar, $11.7 to Rafe Furst, and Chris Ferguson was paid $82, with $25 Milliion paid out and the rest owed. The remaining balance was disbursed to the other unnamed 19 owners. According to Department of Justice records, between Lederer, Bitar and Ferguson, that’s a total of $108 Million in total pay.

It’s unknown how much of that $108 Million will be retrieved by the government and redistributed to Full Tilt players. However, this DOJ action could be seen as a positive sign for Full Tilt Poker players hoping to get their funds returned. The location of Ferguson, Lederer, and Bitar remains unknown, but with the swiftness of the Department of Justice’s actions this week, an official statement is …

keluar sgp Leaderboards – Current Leaders

 

We’re one week from the end of the month which means that the keluar sgp for October on Bodog Poker is getting serious. Who has taken the lead this week and is that lead safe? Read on to find out!

We need to take a look at last week’s weekly leaderboard winners first. Here were the winners when it was all over:

 

  1. quietwinner – 1899 pts
  2. willedtowin – 1897 pts
  3. grewsum2sum – 1672 pts

 

For his efforts, quietwinner won the chance to play a Bodog pro heads-up for $1,000. It came down to the last day in this particular race. Although willedtowin held the top spot for half the week, he lost 1st place on the very last day to quietwinner. And quietwinner was anything but quiet on the last day when he took over 1st place – he stormed all the way from 18th to 1st in one day! That is truly a dramatic way to end the weekly leaderboard race. Grewsum2sum was in 2nd place when I wrote last week and he finished in 3rd to round out the top 10.

 

As for the week that’s happening now, here is the current top 10:

 

  1. HerbTokyo – 1365 pts
  2. willedtowin – 1262 pts
  3. Troy111 – 1250 pts
  4. bigtone52 – 1193 pts
  5. ardie – 1140 pts
  6. L Rocketz – 1135 pts
  7. ParliGod – 1055 pts
  8. manderbutt – 970 pts
  9. papastacks – 938 pts
  10. DARKHELMET13 – 929 pts

 

It looks like 2nd place wasn’t good enough for willedtowin last week, so he’s back to challenge for 1st place again. HerbTokyo, a player I am unfamiliar with, will try to hold willedtowin off. Troy111, an excellent player who finished 2nd for the September leaderboard race is currently in 3rd place to round out the top 3. There are a couple of other familiar names in that list including ParliGod and manderbutt. ParliGod, who won a weekly race back in July, is one of the most consistent tournament players on Bodog and is almost always found in the top 10 of these leaderboards. In fact, he is …

togel hongkong hari ini Variations: Pontoon

Yesterday I wrote about the game of Spanish 21, which is one of the most popular variations of the game of blackjack. Another popular variation that has been around for ages is pontoon. Pontoon is a popular togel hongkong hari ini game in the UK, though you can find it other places as well. Sometimes the names pontoon and Spanish 21 are used interchangeably, even though they are different games.

 

Like blackjack, the object of pontoon is to get a hard higher than the dealer without going over 21, which would cause you to bust. One major difference between pontoon and blackjack is that in pontoon, all of the dealer’s cards are dealt face down, which alters strategy considerably, since it is much more difficult to guess what hand the dealer has. The player’s cards are dealt face up. Another big difference is that there are no push hands (ties) in pontoon. If you and the dealer have the same hand, the dealer wins every time. Both of the above changes tilt the odds in the house’s favor. However, there are some rule variations that help the player as well.

 

In this game, a combination of a 10 and an ace is called a pontoon rather than a blackjack. Pontoon has a rule that is often called a 5-card Charlie: If you draw five cards without busting, you win and the house pays out 2 to 1. In pontoon, that hand is called a “five-card trick.” Another difference is that in pontoon, the player can only stand on a 15 or better, so if you have a 14 and really would like to stand, sorry. You have to hit.

 

In pontoon, the dealer always hits a soft 17. The game is played using between 2 and 8 decks. If you play perfect pontoon strategy, the house edge is only 0.3%, which is right up there with the best casino games.

Review of BeatWebCasinos.Com

Of the many businesses that operate on the Internet, one of the most interesting is the online casino. Are these sites legitimate? How do they work? Do they pay off winners? Do advantage players have any shot at making money there? These are all questions that Bill Haywood sets out to answer in BeatWebCasinos.com.

Haywood starts the book explaining the basic foundations of gambling on the Internet, exploring the casino businesses themselves, the folks who develop the gambling software, how one plays and pays, and why most online casinos actually do pay off their winners. This information is authoritatively written and should be valuable to any player before gambling on the Internet for the first time.

Next, the author discusses advantage play against these casinos. They give sign-up bonuses which can be exploited by savvy gamblers. The trick is to do so without tipping the casino off that one is an advantage player so that it will be easy to collect one’s winnings, and the player will be welcome to return at a later date. This is tricky, since the casino has a complete electronic record of one’s activities at their site. So, Haywood tells the reader about how to camouflage one’s play. He also discusses on what basis to choose which casinos and bonuses are worth playing, and how to keep track of who has paid and who hasn’t.

Later in the book we hear about some more advanced techniques for squeaking out an additional edge. We also learn about sports betting on the Internet and the author’s vision for where Internet gambling is going from here. The book ends with three appendices, a list of the author’s experience of good and not so good Internet casinos, information on some of the software providers, and an explanation of how to play basic strategy blackjack.

As a gambling veteran, although one who has not played in online casinos, I found Haywood’s discussions of the gambling and math issues to be accurate and worthwhile. He clearly understands the what it takes to be an advantage player. As someone very experienced in …

GLUE YOUR DIAMOND PAINTING TO A BLANK PRE-STRETCHED CANVAS

 

This is a great, very easy option that is also relatively inexpensive with Diamond Painting .  All you have to do is purchase a pre-stretched canvas from your favorite craft store or online website.  You will then glue your finished canvas onto it.  This option is so simple and takes all difficulty out of the equation.  You will not need to stretch or staple!

 

Use a spray adhesive to the back of the painting and also on the blank canvas to ensure it stays secure.  Once the glue feels sticky, go ahead and place your painting on the canvas.  Make sure you smooth it down and remove all the wrinkles or bubbles as you go.  Once completed, let it sit and dry for 24 hours.  After 24 hour your masterpiece will be ready to hang!

Latest review of UltimateBet by Tony G.

 

UltimateBet.comUltimateBet has surged to become the second poker room behind PartyPoker in terms of player numbers but I believe at the current rate they will become Nr. 1 very soon. While PartyPoker continues to have software problems and crashes during tournaments ultimatebet has maintained stable software with no crashes. Security is also an issue and you can feel comfortable playing at ultimatebet, I know for a fact they are very tough on collusion and have the best facilities to stop in the industry.

 

If you like loose games this is the place to play and the tournaments offer really good value.

Ways to Know About the Next Cryptocurrency Pump in Crypto Gambling

Because of the unregulated nature of cryptocurrency, pumps and dumps are inevitable. While most people fall prey to this volatility by either buying into the pump or selling into the dump, causing substantial losses when the price either retreats or recovers from the market manipulation. There are ways to know when a pump or a dump might be incoming, this article will discuss the various methods one can use to get informed about market volatility before it occurs.

 

PUBLIC CHAT ROOMS AND FORUMS

There are a variety of chat rooms and forums available to Bitcoin traders looking to stay in the loop. Bitcointalk.org is the most popular forum, by keeping a close eye on the Alternate Cryptocurrencies section you have a better chance of getting informed about major upcoming price swings.

 

Furthermore, trollboxes on exchanges like Bittrex and Poloniex can also provide some insight into market action. While it might be the worst place for trade advice, those chat rooms are still a valuable information resource for altcoin traders.

 

PRIVATE CHAT ROOMS AND COMMUNITIES

Along with the public resources, there are also closed chat rooms. These types of private communities almost always require an upfront payment in order to join. This may put off a lot of people and rightfully so. Most of the time these communities simply want your entrance fee, and the information provided is usually unreliable.

 

MONITORING THE EXCHANGES

For those of you looking to take matters into their own hands, you can monitor the popular exchanges by yourself. The problem with that method, is more often than not you will still miss out on major pumps while doing Crypto Gambling. There are hundreds of trading pairs on dozen exchanges, keeping track of them all is impossible.

 

EXPERTS’ PREDICTIONS

Yet another popular way to stay informed about future market action is through experts’ opinions. Bitcoin blogs, including The Merkle, often publish price analysis and write informational pieces that can help traders make more informed decisions regarding their positions. Another great resource is Tradingview, which has a plethora of charts with explanations …
